Dish Network Update

For those of you who are curious, here is my update! So I called in the morning and they told me they would be here at 4 pm. When I hadn't hear from them by 5 I called and they said a technician was on the way. When no one had shown up by 8 I called again and was told that they would email dispatch and I would get a call with the hour. When I called back at 9 after having recieved to no such promised call, I was told I had actually never had an appointment. I was seeing stars in all of my anger. I immediately began hording chocolate (yes, I lost a point!) to make me feel better. After a long set of anger filled calls and well over an hour on the phone I was told that they would "email dispatch" and request I get an earlier date than my newly scheduled August 23rd appointment. I really think I'm getting a hernia. May I highly recommend that no one ever, ever, ever, ever purchases Dish Network. I don't think it's healthy for me to re-live this experience so I'm going to close now. See ya!

That sucks! I'm sorry. We finally broke down and got an antenna last night :) The picture is super fuzzy, maybe when we get into our house next week we can get cable or something!

I can't believe that they still haven't showed up. That is crazy! It makes me angry just hearing about it. And I can't believe that you are missing all of the Olympics...

Did you ever see the Seinfeld episode when Kramer wouldn't be home for the cable guy and the entire episode is of the cable guy trying to track Kramer down? by the end of the episode he meets up with Kramer and tells him they'll start showing up when they say they will. If only that would really happen. good luck!

after your post, I looked at the pics again, and your right. I'm still laughing about it, but I prefer to think of it as a painter in a french beret. Give it that artsy appeal :)
